[IP] dental surgery



My daughter, Elissa, was 14 when she had FIVE wisdom teeth extracted.  
She had in done under general anesthesia in the oral surgeon's office.  
If your basal rate is properly set, the risk of a low should not be 
significant.  Naturally, you're not going to bolus if you are fasting.  
You get an IV of glucose & water, but it really doesn't amount to much.

After surgery, Elissa was more than happy to indulge in milkshakes & 
puddings.

Watch out for an elevation in bg following surgery, due to stress & 
discomfort.

Good luck!!
